Tactics and Formations used in Football by Jack Summers

[Nov 17, 2006] Over the years many different forms of tactics and formations have been employed by managerial teams in order to give their teams that cutting edge. But which ones have been the most popular. Read on to learn more.

In the very early days of football attack was the name of the game. Teams would typically play with 2 wide men, an inside right, an inside left, and a centre-forward. Skillful and tricky players would take up the wide rolls supplying the crosses for typically big and tall centre forwards to get on the end of. Such approaches to the game must have been easy on the eye with results often ending 11-7 or the like.

As time progressed however and with foreign influences different approaches were being developed. The Italians would go on to develop the more defensive approach, which we know so well today with a bank of four another bank of fours then two strikers. This approach, having produced a fair degree of success, would go on, in a small amount of time, to become adopted as the international standard.

Foreign coaches were still bringing fresh approaches though and an early Hungarian team would bring the world the first example of 'Total Football' where player's positions were less static, the idea being quick interchanges between the positions and to attack as a whole team when in possession.
